October 26-28 Florida Democratic Party Convention at YC/BC

I doubt that the parks will be packed by the conventioneers because they probably have lots scheduled to do (meetings, etc.), but the restaurants might be crowded if you're planning on running over to Beaches & Cream for a "kitchen sink"!

BTW - all the major Republican candidates will be at the Shingle Creek, but no Democratic candidates are "allowed" to show up at the FL Democratic convention because FL voted to move the state primary to January and is in big trouble with the national committee. They are only allowed to fund raise in FL now, nothing else.

Hmm, I wonder about security since none of the big "name" candidates will be attending - though there probably will be more assigned just because of the amount of people that will be there.

More hotel info from the Florida Democratic Party website - looks like the CBR will also be used for convention delegates, so any DISers staying at CBR next weekend will probably see lots of conventioneers around also :

Hotel Info:
The Yacht & Beach Club Resort is sold out. We will keep a wait list of delegates who failed to book hotel rooms before they sold out. We will work with delegates on a case-by-case basis as other rooms become available. There are no guarantees.

The Caribbean Beach Resort is sold out. We will keep a wait list of delegates who failed to book hotel rooms before they sold out. We will work with delegates on a case-by-case basis as other rooms become available. There are no guarantees.

Parking info (looks to me like they will have their own shuttles, so probably won't affect regular guests):

Parking at the actual convention site will only be available to guests staying at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club. However, for those who are staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort or elsewhere, the Party has made arrangements to handle your transportation needs. If you are staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort, we will have a bus shuttle service transporting our delegates throughout the weekend. If you are staying anywhere else in the park or will be commuting to the convention daily, you will be parking in the Epcot Parking Lot. Parking passes will be included in the delegate packet sent to you in the first week of October. A bus shuttle service will also transport delegates to and from the Epcot lot and the Convention Center throughout the weekend.

Schedule (looks to me like they will be pretty busy - maybe too busy to go to the parks! )

Here was the one I said I would get in, sorry it took so long.

2008 Annual ICES Convention
Orlando, Florida
(cake decoration convention)
The convention will be held July 17, - 20, 2008 at the Walt Disney World Contemporary Resort. The room rate is $154 sgl/dbl. Disney will honor that rate 3 days prior to and 3 days after our convention. We are set to begin registration online on March 1, 2008 but we are working to move that up to February 1, 2008!! Please watch the ICES newsletter and check this website for updates. The rooms will go very quickly when registration begins. You must register for convention before you can book your hotel room but you can book multiple rooms. You will need the names of the individuals sharing your room when you register.
